There are so many awesome types of clay available these days. I want to try every single one.
This heart was made with Sculpey’s Ultra Light, and wow, it’s so smoooooth. It feels like your working with home-made angel biscuit dough.
I stuck a sewing needle through the heart and then gently pulled it out before baking.
After it was baked and hardened, I slipped the needle back in place.
I rubbed some Distressing Ink (fired brick) around the heart for color.
Then I made a layered background for the heart out of a piece of muslin with a small piece of burlap garland layered over it. Three ‘kisses’ were added at the top.
I wrapped the extra red thread around a tiny spool. The mini canvas was painted with fiber paste like before, and then I arranged the items on the surface while the paste was still wet.
I stamped the words “sew sweet” onto muslin with a roller stamp, cut them out, mounted them onto cardboard, and then glued it on at the bottom.
Feb. 14th is almost here!? is it just me or is this year flying by at light speed?
My angel Knox is feeling better, thank goodness, and so am I. Yay for antibiotics, yes?
Valentine’s Day is also Knox’s 19 mo. birthday. We celebrate every month so I’ll try and post a special birthday photo of him Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by!
